What Does The Cranberry Vodka Lime Cocktail Taste Like?

This drink’s outstanding feature is how reviving it is without being overpowering. Both the lime and the cranberry are acidic, which really awakens your palate.

Pro Tips

I have a few tips to turn your cocktail into perfection:

  • Use Cranberry Pomegranate Juice Cocktail
  • As much as I love antioxidants, I don’t recommend using unsweetened cranberry juice for this drink; it’s too tart.

CHILLING INGREDIENTS 

Chilling the juice,  soda and vodka for a few hours helps to blend the flavors.
